Hotel Review: Westin St. Louis

  When you travel for business nearly 365 days a year, it is absolutely imperative that you build in some downtime for the family. Almost everyone we share our story with has been fascinated by the idea of seeing so many new places but they fail to realize how much hard work it really is. For me, there are three ...

Hotel Review: Staybridge Suites Indianapolis Carmel

  If you are not a member of a hotel loyalty program, and you stay at hotels, you are missing out. Not just on the small things like saving your preferences and being notified of special deals, but big things like free room upgrades and free nights. You don’t need to join every single program out there, just start with ...

Hotel Review: Sheraton Cleveland Airport

  Airport hotels had not been kind to me in the past. From my experience, they just seem to wear out faster then hotels in other locations. That doesn’t mean there aren’t excellent airport hotels, just that it requires extra attention from management when it comes to making renovations, improvements or regular maintenance. Since we drive almost everywhere, we haven’t ...

Hotel Review: Westin Cleveland Downtown

  If there was one major city that you could legitimately call my hometown, Cleveland would probably be it. Although I was born and raised about a half hour away in Akron, this is the city I have always claimed as my own. Not because I have a false sense of ownership but simply because I identified with the people ...

Hotel Review: Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh

  Pittsburgh is a great city to visit if you don’t mind putting up with the traffic headaches that accompany it. Downtown is usually easy to navigate though, so our first of two nights was spent at the Westin Convention Center. Our second night was planned in advance though, as we wanted to make sure we had a chance to ...

Hotel Review: Westin Convention Center Pittsburgh

  Downtown hotels can be both a blessing and a curse. That is to say, they have their advantages and disadvantages. You will be close to all the action but most likely have to pay for parking. You will have a better view but fight traffic to arrive or depart. Pittsburgh is a beautiful city but outside of the immediate ...

Hotel Review: TownePlace Suites Harrisburg

  We love extended stay properties. When you practically live on the road like we do, a hotel with a full kitchen is wonderful. Not only because we choose to eat organic and cook most of our own meals, but because it saves money as well. We certainly can’t afford to eat out every single night and I imagine that ...

Hotel Review: Hotel Monaco Baltimore

  This is one of the most magnificent historical building renovations I have ever seen. To be fair, I haven’t seen but a handful, but you can tell this is something special when you walk in. But hold on, let me back up a little and tell you where we are. Fresh off two nights in Washington DC, we were ...

Why Are Drivers So Impatient?

  When you are literally on the road 365 days a year, you see some pretty crazy things. When I started traveling, I had these preconceived notions that drivers from certain states were better than others. You imagined, as one example, that drivers in New York City were simply not as laid back as drivers in Orlando, Florida. After three full ...

Get Every 4th Hotel Night Free

  Is there anyone in the entire world who doesn’t like to travel for free? I’m sure there are people who don’t like to travel, but even they have to go visit relatives, attend a child’s sporting event or go out of town on business at some point. So no matter what kind of person you are, getting the fourth ...
